Construction to close Allen Road off-ramp beginning September 25
  
The Allen Road southbound off-ramp at Lawrence Avenue West in Toronto will be closed each night from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. beginning Monday, September 25 and extending until Sunday, October 1 to allow for ramp-widening work, weather permitting. The widened ramp will open fully at 5 a.m. on October 1.

To help manage traffic in the area, enhanced signage will inform drivers of the road closures and signal-timing changes are being made on parallel routes. Road users, however, should still expect delays and increased traffic on nearby roads.

The City of Toronto has a web-based map to help residents and visitors make their travel plans, available at http://www.toronto.ca/roadrestrictions. Information about the City's planned capital construction work is available at http://www.toronto.ca/inview.

This work is part of the City's comprehensive, co-ordinated strategy to rehabilitate and upgrade Toronto's roads, transit and underground infrastructure for current and future needs.

Toronto is Canada's largest city, the fourth largest in North America, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. It is a global centre for business, finance, arts and culture and is consistently ranked one of the world's most livable cities. In 2017, Toronto is honouring Canada's 150th birthday with "TO Canada with Love," a year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can visit http://www.toronto.ca, call 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or follow us on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/TorontoComms and on Instagram at http://www.instagram.com/cityofto.
